The Daily Shortlist July 16
The HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival presents the 1953 film classic Roman Holiday starring Audrey Hepburn, who wowed critics and audiences in her first major role as a runaway princess who falls in love with an American newsman (Gregory Peck). Shot on location in Rome by William Wyler. For dinner, check out Vinyl, a rock and roll themed restaurant, where the menus are made of old album covers and the food is a mix of American and Thai. Don’t forget to check out the bathroom, each one has a music icon theme. With vaulted ceilings and a mostly red and cream interior, the Cellar Bar, located in the Bryant Park Hotel, is one gorgeous place, creating a sexy atmosphere. The drinks are pricey, but worth the stopover. For kicks, take a little walk through the The Bryant Park Hotel. This chic boutique hotel, designed by British architect David Chipperfield, not only has the Cellar Bar but the Koi Restaurant, a fantastic Japanese spot.
